Nordic Summer Training

LOCAL PROGRAMS

These camps are for U12 and U14 and U16 athletes looking to see what summer Nordic training looks like without having to sign up for a year-round program. These camps will help athletes develop key summer Nordic training techniques and philosophies while teaching mountain safety awareness. Each camp is four days long and will be slightly different so that an athlete could sign up for multiple camps and get something out of each one.

Equipment requirements:
  • Bag for all gear
  • Lunch with extra snacks and water
  • Water belt or drink pack
  • Running Shoes
  •  Helmet
  • Skate or combi boots
  • Poles with roller ski ferrules
